Subject[PATCH 14/16] nbd: Set SOCK_MEMALLOC for access to PFMEMALLOC reserves
Date
Set SOCK_MEMALLOC on the NBD socket to allow access to PFMEMALLOC
reserves so pages backed by NBD, particularly if swap related, can
be cleaned to prevent the machine being deadlocked. It is still
possible that the PFMEMALLOC reserves get depleted resulting in
deadlock but this can be resolved by the administrator by increasing
min_free_kbytes.
